L12. Should I Stay Or Should I Go: When Our Companies Have Eyes For Other Consumers

When new customers receive exclusive benefits, existing customers’ attachment anxiety predicts switching. Attachment avoidance predicts greater switching, regardless of benefit recipient. Perceived betrayal and firm commitment underlie switching.
